Corporate espionage costs US businesses approximately $4 billion in losses annually. The annual cost of identity fraud in the US reportedly $52.6 billion and climbing. 87% of identity theft is perpetrated through non-electronic means – such as dumpster diving – by criminals accessing private records that have been thoughtlessly disposed of. Your trash is the single most available source of competitive and private information. When data ends up in a dumpster, it is readily-and legally-available to anyone who mines it. Each instance of corporate fraud costs the victimized business an average of $800,000.
Negligent mishandling of ‘waste’ documents has forced the enactment of laws designed to protect the privacy of businesses and individuals, such as: FACTA (Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act), the Privacy Act of 1974, the Economic Espionage Act of 1996, HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Wisconsin Shredding Law (February 2000), Arizona Assembly Bill 2246 (October 2001), Georgia Identity Theft Law (July 2002). Arizona vs. Greenwood (1988).
Whether safeguarding company trade information or a client worried about consumer privacy and identity theft, the need to protect the confidential information entrusted to your business is now the law.
